This way, BBB doesn't accidentally record a vote one way then see this post and have to go back and figure out which way the vote needs to go now. (It's not so bad if just one person does it, but if you get a lot of folks changing votes, it gets confusing))

A man born rich, living rich, and dieing rich, has no incentive for innovation. If I wanted to punish monopolies, I would make sure it was only have said innovator was no longer a leading member of the company.

    Thus, while I am opposed to punishing these industrious, I would much like the consideration to be taken for the "good" and "bad" monopolies. (As a note, Teddy Roosevelt held the same idea, that some monopolies are naturally good, while others bad). Also, we must avoid the pursuit of monopolies to become another example in the public's eyes of corrupt politicians, lobbyists, and opportunistic government.
    My friend, I can appreciate this mythos about the self-made man; it seems fundamentally true as we should believe that all men are equal, however, it is patently false. The truth is that very few men ever achieve this rise from "rags-to-riches". Most people in society remain in the class they were born into, with people more likely to descend, than ascend, the ladder. What will allow each man to display his natural talents and become an innovator is if each man has the equal opportunity of education and experience. The education and experience which the children of the wealthy are born into give them incredible advantages in the realm of success, advantages bestowed solely from birth, not the merit of which the ACP are such advocates.

    I dont disagree with the importance of a public education, I simply disagreed with the punishment of those innovators who were in fact self made, and have formed companies from this dream which are net benefits for the nation.

    But, I believe we already have every single social improvement available as ordained by fate (We have every single social reform, perhaps we need to add some fake ones for Role playing reasons?)

    ((BBB said several of the social's can still be upgraded.))

    As I have stated, most of these "self-made men" are not, indeed, self-made. Most of them had the advantage of wealth, a starting point well above that of the common man. I merely seek to even the playing field and allow all people to display their true potential in society.

    SACRAMENTO SENTINEL
    VICE-PRESIDENT JARVIS DEAD


    January 3, 1897

    We received word from the Jarvis family that the elderly family patriarch, Henry James Jarvis has died. He was found in his bed, dead from a heart attack. Over the last few years, his health had been in significant decline; indeed, he had rarely been seen since his retirement from politics in 1890. There has been no official statement from his grandson, Governor Joseph P. Jarvis (R-Ca), though we are expecting one for tomorrow's paper. He was ninety-four.

    Henry Jarvis was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on April 24, 1802, to Charles A. Jarvis, a successful businessman and Revolutionary War veteran, and Elizabeth Adams-Jarvis, a distant relative to Presidents John Adams and John Q. Adams. As a young college student (attending Harvard), he became influenced by the liberals and abolitionists, and soon became a staunch supporter of a free market and a free nation. After graduating, he joined his father's business. When the Texan War of Independence began, he, and a few friends and associates, volunteered and headed to San Antonio, where they constantly harassed Mexican patrols. Becoming a strong force in the War, he was chosen to be the Secretary of State for the new Texas Republic. In this capacity, he was instrumental in getting Texas into the United States as a free state. He then ran for Lt. Governor, but was driven out by pro-slavery groups after Texas was allowed to become a slave state. He arrived in California in 1840, and by 1842, he became a force for pro-American immigrants.

    When the Mexican-American war broke out, he and other pro-American leaders, formed the California Union Militia, with Jarvis as commander in chief. Shortly after beating the main Mexican force in the region, they declared the Republic of California, with Jarvis as Governor (he chose that office rather than president), and applied for statehood. With the war going on, the Congress could not review the bill, so California joined as a territory, with Jarvis remaining governor. His governorship was, until Oliver Glynne, the longest in California history (1842-1854). With his term over, he ran, and easily, won a California Senate seat. His biggest achievement was getting his Indian Citizenship Bill passed with broad support.

    In 1872, the seventy year old Senator announced his candidacy for President. Despite strong showings, he was unable best the popular general, Maximilian Mandrake (R-Oh). To better unify the party, Jarvis was made Vice-President. The term was uneventful overall, and Mandrake opted out of running for a second term, instead endorsing his aging Vice-President. Jarvis, now the oldest candidate running, handily beat his longtime ally Calvin Carr (who was also recently beaten for the ACP nomination at age 70) and chose him be Vice-President. Jarvis-Carr was beaten by social democrat Eamon Callahan in a coalition ticket. With this defeat, he worked to become a Justice for the California Supreme Court. Jarvis would once again seek the nomination, at age 78, in 1880. This defeat marked the last attempt by Jarvis for the presidency.

    Jarvis spent the last decade of his political career in marked silence, dedicated wholly to California, becoming Chief Justice in 1881. A the age of ninety, Jarvis announced his retirement, right as his grandson began his first moves for Governor.
